Waiting on Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is a fabulous event sponsored by Jill at Breaking the Spine Here, I will highlight a book that will be coming out that I'm really looking forward to reading.

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the Darkest Powers trilogy from Kelley Armstrong.  So when I found out that she was going to write a second  YA trilogy that takes place in the same world, I might have squealed like a fangirl at a Justin Bieber concert.  And she is apparently going to bring in the characters from the DP trilogy in the last book.  How could I not be excited about more Chloe and Derek???

So the book that I am waiting on this week is The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong.  It will release in April 2011.

"Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can’t find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students—for every grade from kindergarten to twelve.

Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya's determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya's home, and they won’t go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts getting negative vibes from certain people and things. It doesn't help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret—and he's interested in one special part of Maya's anatomy: Her paw-print birthmark."

And if you haven't read the Darkest Powers trilogy, run to your nearest bookstore or library as fast as you possibly can!
